 On 9 August 2018, a proclamation was published in the Government Gazette, that new provisions are now in force.  These provisions require that any person wishing to stand for Council at the October is required to have undertaken mandatory induction.  Unless the training has been satisfactorily completed, the Returning Officer (appointed by the WA Electoral Commissioner) is required to reject the nominations.


Details are on the Department of Local Government, Sporting and Cultural Industries website.  At the end of the induction, there is a registration form to be completed, printed and given to the Returning Officer when submitting a candidate nomination.
